IoT is, at its core, a fairly simple concept. Basically, what it brings down to is that we’re making our products smarter. We’re embedding Internet-enabled computer chips and sensors in products and devices that traditionally had little to no computing capacity – everything from watches to car engines to generators to home automation and even garage doors . All of them have the capacity to be controlled,monitored,programmed and generate data.
How will IoT leverage Big Data
The significant increase in connected devices that’s due to happen at the hands of the Internet of Things. It will in turn, lead to an exponential increase in the data that an enterprise is required to manage. Here’s where IoT intersects wonderfully with big data – and where it becomes evident that the two trends fit one another like a glove. But its important to take into account that Big Data has been around with us for a while and IoT is in its infancy state . So to take them hand in hand , industries and tech experts should know the importance of the data generated and be able to communicate through it .
While larger enterprises like Coca-Cola, General Electric, and Domino’s Pizza have managed to tap into its value, most businesses will have to wait some time before they can really enjoy the advantages of IoT and Big data analytics . But he change can be seen when many upcoming enterprises and IoT based startups are catcching up with this latest trend .
In the phase of connected homes , HomuyHub is showing keen interest in the field of Big data . With the first product as automated garage door openers , HomyHub is trying to reduce the time , cost , efforts and make life simple. Also with a team of tech enthusiast and data analytics professionals , they are trying to generate valuable information from the data generated . For example, knowing time frame of the opening and closing of the doors and generating a pattern from it . The lifetime of the product can be increased by reducing the battery consumption or even turning off the device automatically at that particular time frame.
“We know that Big Data has become a trend in the recent time . But we are not merely trying to use it as a topping but rather mix its flavor with the recipe of our technology” – , Ankit Pareek, Head of Communication and Data analyst at HomyHub .
Big Data capacity is, in essence, a prerequisite to enter the IoT era. Without the proper data-gathering in place, it’ll be impossible for businesses to sort through all the information flowing in from embedded sensors.
